Remote sensing technology can be used to obtain information bathymetry. Bathymetric information plays an important role for fisheries, hydrographic and navigation safety. Bathymetric information derived from remote sensing data is highly dependent on the quality of satellite data use and processing. One of the processing to be done is the atmospheric correction process. The data used in this study is Landsat 8 image obtained on June 19, 2013. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of different atmospheric correction on bathymetric information extraction from Landsat satellite image data 8. The atmospheric correction methods applied were the minimum radiant, Dark Pixels and ATCOR. Bathymetry extraction result of Landsat 8 uses a third method of atmospheric correction is difficult to distinguish which one is best. The calculation of the difference extraction results was determined from regression models and correlation coefficient value calculation error is generated.
